We do not need more information, not even insight, but a new determination to sidestep rampant consumption of miscellanea, seize upon one or two intuitive illuminations and make something from them.
As I see this, that’s about turning the focus away from consumption, whether that be information or anything else, and begin to draw out a linear line of qualitative accomplishment from what we have already collected. Even if that be in the very smallest of endeavors. It is in that intentional outward linearity that we discover, and have purpose for, higher-end complex qualities, such as sublime precision (one of my favorites). That then pulls us into a new dimension of freedom, but more importantly, gives back something exceptionally worthwhile to the community that we’re already a part of. A few illuminating examples of sublime precision…

“This is just fantastic, and relieves some nagging issue I couldn’t even put my finger on. Talk about sublime precision. I agree completely with your emphasis on conversation and also honing attention to create from one or two primary threads. Instead of stuffing ourselves with endless consumption and distraction, however temporarily appetizing. Bringing something worthy back out into the world, into the real conversation. Someone is listening to this most excellent conversation!” – R.R.
The “Swirlonic effect”:
“Fish school, insects swarm and birds fly in murmurations. Now, new research finds that on the most basic level, this kind of group behaviour forms a new kind of active matter, called a swirlonic state.”
“The particles also grouped together as large conglomerates, or quasi-particles, which milled together in a circular pattern around a central void, kind of like a swirl of schooling sardines. The researchers dubbed these particle conglomerates “swirlons,” and named the new state of matter they formed a “swirlonic state.”
“In this swirlonic state, the particles displayed bizarre behaviour. For example, they violated Newton’s second law: When a force was applied to them, they did not accelerate. [They] just move with a constant velocity, which is absolutely surprising,”
“It’s quite important that we see the nature of active matter” is much richer than that of passive matter, Brilliantov said.
